Made in Donald

What is it they say about adversity breeding creativity? Who would have thought a rather individualistic fashion label could blossom from a small country town in central Victoria. One town where regular bingo, Tai Chi and clay bird shooting are the highlights on the social events calendar. Nadia Pearse is the designer of Made in Donald; the label named for the town where she grew up and still loves.

Breaking away from Donald, Pearse’s creative talents are popping up on fashion week runways, in magazines like X&Y and are certainly firmly on my radar. The designer also works at the beautiful bul store in the CBD, so you might catch her there should you want to order one of her custom or collection pieces. More recently Made in Donald has just started its own blog where Nadia discusses taking her own path in fashion, work and life…

Nadia has kindly allowed us to show off a few designs from her current Spring Summer collection as well as the Winter collection that she will be previewing from this Sunday at Fashion Exposed. You can register to visit for free here.
